    I bought one. Waste of money IMO. Thought it would be good in beds around car dealership. But the balloon streamers get wrapped around the cutter. Wet leaves get the bag wet and then your pants and shirt are soaked. Only use I found is sucking up cigarette butts

    I highly recommend these, so long as you understand their limitations. Picked one up last fall and it gets used weekly throughout the whole season. Spring time we use it for mulch cleanup-spills in the turf or on the hardscaping where a blower would disturb the fresh mulch. We do a lot of boxwood trimming in the area amd these are great for getting clippings up. With leafs they are great for stairwells and small isolated areas.
